Fogtown Tap Takeover at Finn's

Join us at Finn's Irish Pub to celebrate one year of delivering beer to our neighbors on Main Street. Finn's has been buying and pouring Fogtown beer since day one, and we are so thankful for their unwavering support. The idea of Fogtown was borne from late night brainstorms and fish poppers in Finn's train car, lubricated by the finest beer selection in town.

We will be pouring three fresh beers:
Cocodrilo - Toasted Coconut Porter
Munich - Dark American Lager
Second Thought - Double IPA

Meet the brewers and owners of Ellsworth's first working brewery, and celebrate fresh beer in downtown Ellsworth!

Homebrewing 101

Discover the centuries-old art of brewing beer in a two-class course (Class 1 on Jan 29th, Class 2 on Feb 12th) taught by Jon Stein, owner and head brewer at Fogtown!

Please click here to register at the Ellsworth Adult Education website!

We’ll cover the basics: sourcing ingredients and equipment, recipe building, brewing technique and methodology, beer styles and approaches, troubleshooting and off-flavors, and the craft, science, and magic behind it all! We’ll brew an example beer as a class, taking it through all the necessary steps from brew-day to bottling-day during the course of our syllabus, and will encourage students to brew their own batches at home using the techniques learned. *Note: This class meets two weeks apart for time to complete the fermentation cycle. You will bring home two bottles of beer. You must be at least 21 years old to register for this class. Makeup class (if needed) 02/26/19.

Jon began home-brewing at an early age, and later applied his educational background in biochemistry to the craft. He has worked in craft brewing for a number of years, and has studied under brewmasters from Denmark, Germany, New Zealand and Colorado.
